Common Questions About Minnesota Work Comp Cases
At Fay & Associates LLC, we think it’s important to address frequently asked questions about workers’ compensation law in Minnesota. Here’s a list of the most common questions we review with clients:
What should I do after I’ve been injured? It is important that you report an injury immediately after your accident. Failing to report the accident could be detrimental to your workers’ comp claim. It is also important to see a doctor and have your medical diagnosis documented.
Do I get to choose my own doctor? Yes, you are able to choose your own doctor for your workers’ comp case. You do not have to go to a doctor recommended by your employer.
Do I get to choose my own qualified rehabilitation consultant (QRC)? QRCs are provided by the state of Minnesota, but you are able to choose your own. It is a common misconception that you do not have say in the process of choosing your QRC.
Other questions we frequently answer involve issues involving:
- Workers’ comp and filing taxes
- Workers’ comp and unemployment
- Workers’ comp settlements
- Workers’ comp benefits and SSDI
- Workers’ comp and independent medical examiners
